Frequently Asked Questions

How much are MJ Broadway tickets?

Ticket prices for this Michael Jackson Broadway musical range from approximately $94 to $386 depending on availability and performance date.

What are the most expensive tickets for MJ on Broadway?

Premium tickets costing up to $386 are located in Center Orchestra rows BB-K, and these are fantastic for seeing the sharp footwork and choreography Michael Jackson was famed for up close, performed by a hugely talented cast.

Theatergoers rave about sitting in the top Orchestra seats for this show, with one person saying E112 is “the perfect seat to be able to see the show and the dances as a whole”, whilst E113 is “up close and personal”. This show mixes exhilarating choreography, fantastic set design and character-driven moments, so you can enjoy the best mix of all three from here.

How can I get cheap tickets to MJ on Broadway?

If you are looking for the cheapest seats in the house, book a month or so in advance, when there is more availability in the cheaper price bands. For great value, compare weekend to weekday prices and try to be flexible. If you are able to see the show on a Tuesday-Thursday, you can save up to 20% on ticket prices in some areas of the venue, and get in to see the show for less than $100.

Take a look at restricted view seats at the sides of the Orchestra to sit in this section for less. These are often at least $100 less than seats closer to the center, and many theatergoers confirm that the view of the stage is not bad - see H15 for a great example, with a SeatPlan reviewer stating that you only miss a couple of entrances.
